Diagnostic Testing for COVID-19 in LMICs: Complete the survey!


Dear colleagues,

I am writing to you on behalf of the COVID-19 Clinical Research Coalition.
There is concern about the lack of diagnostic testing for COVID-19 in many low- and middle-income countries. Contexts can vary widely, and there can be many reasons for the lack of COVID-19 testing, ranging from supply, distribution, and demand-side issues to cost, capacity, and prioritization. Key entities are monitoring and supporting COVID-19 testing, including the Africa CDC, PAHO and others at regional levels, and WHO, ACT-A, FIND and others at the global level.

To help inform advocacy and communications on diagnostics, we are sharing a short survey (5 minutes or less), intended to be a “pulse check” regarding the current situation.
Thank you in advance for sharing what you know, and for sharing this survey within your networks.

Best wishes,
